Brain Complications:

Like any other organ, the brain also can have numerous complications and disease conditions. It can have age-related degeneration, neurological complications, vascular complications, and injuries, complications post-surgery, psychiatric issues, physiological issues caused due to congenital defects, genetic defects, and endocrine disorders, and many others. These complications can manifest in the form of sensory deprivation, loss of consciousness, altered mental states, seizures, headaches, altered speech, memory loss, and other physical manifestations. When the diseases are of vascular in nature, they are called cerebrovascular diseases. Some of the cerebrovascular diseases include stroke, vascular dementia, arteriovenous malformations, aneurysms, transient ischemic attack, and subarachnoid hemorrhage. Neurological brain diseases include tumors, lesions, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neuropathies, neuralgias, sleep disorders, Huntington’s disease, migraines, cluster headaches, and tension headaches. Age-related illnesses include dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Brain complications even include infectious diseases like meningitis, tuberculosis of the brain, and Prion diseases. Brain complications can also be of psychiatric in nature with conditions like manic depression, schizophrenia, and other mental disorders. Certain genetic disorders can also create brain complications Barth syndrome, Rett syndrome, and other birth defects. Endocrine disorders of the body can also lead to brain complications. Disorders of the pineal glands, pituitary glands, thyroid glands, and adrenal glands are create brain complications. Conditions like gigantism, dwarfism, psychiatric disorders, intracranial tumors, acromegaly, Hashimoto encephalopathy, optic neuropathy and many others. People with diabetes are also prone to many brain complications due to high blood sugar levels. The small blood vessels of the brain tend to get damaged over time with high blood sugar levels. This can lead to vascular dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, reduced brain volume, psychiatric issues, and many other neurological complications. Hypoglycemic episodes are known to create headaches, dizziness, trouble concentrating, convulsions, seizures and even coma. Diabetes also causes headaches, migraines, strokes, transient ischemic attacks, aneurysms, hemorrhage, brain plasticity, and many other conditions. People with diabetes who have had brain complications generally take more time to recover than non-diabetic people.
